Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano marks a significant milestone as the City unveiled the pioneering LGU-operated Disability Resource and Development Center in the nation, emphasizing her unwavering dedication to inclusivity and empowerment for persons with disabilities.

Launched on January 9 in Brgy. North Signal, the six-storey facility emerges as an important hub for information dissemination, program and policy development, and capacity building, catering to all disability stakeholders in Taguig City.

Mayor Lani graced the event and expressed her love and support for this sector.

“Patunay na sa Taguig hindi lang natin basta sinasabi na mahal natin ang mga Persons with Disability, kundi may kaakibat na aksyon at kaakibat na programa. Dalangin ko po na ang pasilidad na ito ay magdulot ng ginhawa at kagalingan sa mga taong makikinabang. Inaalay po natin ito para sa sektor na malapit sa aking puso at higit sa lahat, for the greater glory of our Lord,” said Mayor Lani.

The Center offers Speech Therapy as part of its comprehensive range of free services, alongside Adult and Pediatric Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and consultations with a rehabilitation medical doctor and developmental pediatrician. The Center also facilitates the application, processing, and issuance of PWD IDs and hosts free livelihood and developmental training programs.

Designed as a state-of-the-art facility, the Center is the new home for the Persons with Disability Affairs Office and the Philippine Registry for Persons with Disability Services. It features various specialized rooms, including therapy rooms, consultation rooms, a multi-sensory integration room, training rooms, conference rooms, and even pantries. The building also houses an E-library accessible to all Taguigueño residents, serving as a valuable learning and research hub.

Focused on creating a Transformative, Lively, and Caring City, the local government continues to introduce initiatives that enhance the well-being and quality of life of all residents, including those with disabilities.
